    Trouble with Creating AVCHD Disc

    Sknis, Thank you for all your help. After working with this issue, I have found a workaround that may help others on this forum. The roundabout way I used to create an AVCHD disc is as follows. I output the VideoWave project to MPEG-2 HD 1080i video file. (My original files in the VideoWave project were .m2ts files that were taken from my Sony HDR-XR500V video camera. These video files are 1920x1088 with a frame rate of 29.97.) Then I opened MyDvd, selected AVCHD, added the MPEG-2 file (instead of the VideoWave Project), selected the HQ setting and created a dvd menu. I then clicked on the "Burn" button and created an ISO file. I checked the ISO file by loading it into a virtual drive and playing it with CinePlayer. The ISO file played fine with no audio problems. Then I used ImgBurn to burn the ISO file to disc. By doing the above, I was able to create an AVCHD disc where the audio matched the video. It just seems like a lot of hoops to go through just to create an AVCHD disc. If anyone has any other suggestions, please let me know. Kelly

    Trouble with Creating AVCHD Disc

    Sknis, I am sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you regarding this subject, but I was pulled to do another project that took up a lot of my time. So here I am trying to see how I can create a AVCHD disc without having an audio issue. Here is a recap of my situation. I have a Sony HDR-XR500V video camera and took some HD (1920x1088, 29.97 frame rate) videos. I copied the video files from the Sony camera's hard drive to my new desktop computer (see below for the specs on new computer). I then brought the HD files into VideoWave and created a project (28 minutes long). I then closed out VideoWave and opened MyDVD and selected AVCHD. I selected a menu and added the VideoWave project. When I create an AVCHD disc, the audio does not match the video. When I take the same video project and create a HQ DVD instead of an AVCHD disc, the audio matches perfectly with the video. This tells me that there is nothing wrong with how I copied the video files from the camcorder to the computer. I did try your suggestion to create just a folder set and play the ISO file. When I created the folder set, I did not see an ISO file, but I did see a BDMV file folder and in that folder I saw a Stream folder. In the Stream folder, I saw the AVCHD video and played it. The audio still does not match the video - the audio is way behind the video. I even tried your suggestion and used SP Quality instead of HQ setting. The audio is still an issue. I also tried just creating an AVCHD ISO file, and the audio is still off. Are there any other suggestions out there that I should try to fix this. Creating HD discs was the main reason why I purchased Creator 2010 Pro. Any further help on this would greatly be appreciated. Kelly

    Burning a DL Disc

    cdanteek, Thank you for your suggestion of using Imgburn. I downloaded Imgburn, however, I still had the freeze/pause at the layer break. Myguggi, Thank you for your help. I found out that the menu I had selected (and which I modified the background) did work. The reason why I questioned it was because when I changed the rendering from hardware to software, the background on the menu went black. But when it was rendered, the background actually was there. I also experienced this in VW, when I changed the rendering from hardware to software, some of my pictures in a green screen effect went black, but when I exported the video, the pictures were fine after the video was rendered. Again, thank you both for all your help. Kelly

    Burning a DL Disc

    Thanks Cdanteek, Jim and Myguggi for your replies. I will change the rendering to "Software Rendering" and create an ISO file in MyDVD. However, when I tried to create the dvd menu in MyDVD, I was unable to change the background to a jpg file. I was able to do this when I was in hardware rendering. I would click on "Change Menu Background" and then choose the jpg file I want for the background. Now when I do this, all I get is a black screen. Is there a way to choose a jpg as your background for the dvd menu when you are in "software rendering" mode? Kelly

    Burning a DL Disc

    Well, I finally was able to finish my VW project that I have asked several questions to this forum and with your help, I was able complete it. My last set of questions was regarding burning my project on a DL disc. I have a VW project that is 1 hour and 46 minutes in length. The original files were transferred from a Sony HDR-XR500V video handycam and are MPEG-2 720x480 files. When I first created the DVD through MYDVD, I would use the actual VW project and set the quality at "Same as Original." The video had several jerky motions throughout - as if it were bringing the picture into focus from time to time. I got the same result when I changed the quality to HQ. So I exported the video in VW to an MPEG-2 High Definition 720p video file. Then, through MyDVD, I burned this file to a DL disc. The video has no jerky movements and fits on one DL disc. I don't know why this fixed the jerky motion, but it did. The DL Discs I have tried are Memorex and Verbatim DVD+R DL. Now here is my problem. At the 59 minute 35 second mark, there is a 1-2 second pause in video. When I play this disc on the computer (I tested it on three), there is no pause. However, when I tested it on two dvd players, the pause is there. I have the following DVD/Bluray players: 1) Magnavox NB530MGX Bluray Player 2) SV2000 DVD Recorder with Video Cassette Recorder Has anyone had this kind of problem or would know how to fix this problem.

    Editing in VideoWave

    Sknis, Thanks for the advice. I was originally thinking of doing it in VW and then saving the separate files, however, I am hopeful it will all fit on one disc. I will look for Verbatim DL discs. Thanks, again, for all your help. Kelly

    Editing in VideoWave

    Myguggi, I didn't realize that dvd recording is based more on time than the size of the file. That is good to know. I will try to burn the video on one DL dvd and see what happens. Jim, Thank you for the time guide. I am sure that will come in handy. Thanks for taking the time to see if it was possible to delete more than one track at a time. I also thought of your suggestion of exporting the video as a mpeg and then bringing it back to VW to cut the movie in half. However, you suggested doing that in MyDVD. I did see where you could edit a movie in MyDVD, so if the video does not fit on one DL disk, I will try your suggestion. Again, thank you both for all your help. Kelly

    Editing in VideoWave

    Jim, I tried what you said, but I must be doing something wrong. In my project, I would be deleting at least 111 video clips, with several music, overlays and text lines. This is what I did. While in the timeline mode, I did a split at the 52nd minute mark While on the video line, held the shift key and went to the beginning of the show and selected the first slide and hit the delete button All the videos after that point moved to the beginning of project - but the text, music, and overlays stayed where they originally were placed I saved file and reopened - nothing was readjusted. I then manually deleted all the text, music, and overlays up to the 52nd minute mark - but nothing moved - I would still have to realign the music, overlays, and text lines. I even tried storyline mode and deleted all the clips up to the 52nd minute mark and then looked on the timeline mode, but the music and overlays were not deleted, just the video clips. Is there a way to select the first part of the video - all the video clips, music, overlays, and text lines at one time - and then delete them? Then have the last part of the video - music, overlays, and text lines - all move to the beginning? Thanks for all your help. Sknis, Thanks for your suggestion. I am using a DL disc, but it seemed that I could not get the highest quality on one disc as the file rendered at 13 gig. So I am using two DL discs for this project. Kelly

    Editing in VideoWave

    I am using Creator 2010 Pro, and have a VideoWave question. I have created a VideoWave Project that is 1 hour and 45 minutes. This is too long to get on one dvd in the highest quality, so I would like to split my project in half. I was able to delete everything past the 52 minute mark (I manually deleted the videos, music, overlays, etc. to create Disc 1. Is there a way you can delete the video line, music line, overlay lines, etc. in one big block (the first half of the project) and have the whole project then move to the beginning of the timeline, while keeping the videos, music, and overlays aligned?

    Trouble with Creating AVCHD Disc

    Sknis, Thank you for your reply. I will try your suggestion and post back my results. Kelly
  12. Thanks Chukky and GGRussel, You were right, I did not have the 16:9 setting set. Thanks for your help. Kelly
  13. Jim, I meant to say that I click on the button that says, "Send to MyDVD." After that, a screen comes up and you click on the type of project you want (Standard Definition - DVD or VCD/SVCD; High Definition - Blu-ray or AVCHD). Kelly Thanks GGRussell, I will double check my settings. Kelly

    Trouble with Creating AVCHD Disc

    Sknis, In reference to your last post, I am not sure what you were asking when you said, "Are you making separate image files as a separate step." There are 26 individual .mts files that are loaded into VideoWave with random transitions. Kelly
  15. I am attempting to try #2 in the above quote, however, I am not finding an option of "MPEG-2 High Definition 1080i" in my video outputs from VideoWave. I created my project by adding my .mts video files to the project, added transitions and then saved the project. I then went to "Export As" and I look under Video File (Purpose All), and click under "Video File Quality", I see MPEG-2 for DVD best quality, MPEG-2 for DVD better quality, MPEG-2 for DVD normal quality, MPEG-2 for DVD smallest file size, and MPEG-2 SVCD. I can't seem to find anything that gives me 1080i. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Kelly
